Knitted hat complete!

Hello Friends!

Countdown to Christmas: 17 days

I am so happy today because I finished knitting the hat for my boyfriend for Christmas this morning!  I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick wool in the black color.  I used size 9 mm needles in the circular needles form.  I casted on 48 stitches because he was 22" and it was two stitches for every inch so I did a couple inches extra for wiggle room.

The finished hat! 


 Pattern:
Cast on 2 stitches for every inch of the person's head.
Then k2, p2 all the way around until ribbing is the length you want.
K all the way around until hat measures 6" - 7" then start to decrease
to decrease divide your hat up into groups of 8 stitches and put markers.  Decrease by knitting two stitches together a two stitches to the marker and knit the rest of the stitches.  Do this until you arrive at 4 stitches and cut your yarn about 6" then pull the yarn through the stitches with a crochet hook or needle then weave the remaining yarn down through the top of the hat.


Ribbed stitches at the bottom then knit all the way up

Hope he likes it!
I wish you all a great day.
